Did you ever enjoy playing with food coloring? I did, many times. And that, plus my lifetime fascination with computers inspired me to come up with this blog. These are the 16 colors from the Intellivision, rendered in McCormick Food Coloring. It uses the standard red/yellow/green/blue, plus the neon purple/green/pink/blue, and black. Black: 8 parts Black Blue: 7 parts Blue, 1 part Red Red: 7 parts Red Tan: 2 parts Yellow, 1 part Red, 1 part Green Dark Green: 10 parts Green, 1 part Blue, 2 parts Black Green: 6 parts Green, 3 parts Yellow Yellow: 7 parts Yellow White: None Gray: 3 parts Black, 1 part Neon Purple Cyan: 3 parts Blue, 1 part Green Orange: 3 parts Yellow, 3 parts Red Brown: 7 parts Yellow, 6 parts Red, 6 parts Green Pink: 2 part Red, 1 part Neon Pink Light Blue: 1 part Neon Blue, 1 part Neon Purple Yellow-Green: 3 parts Yellow, 1 part Green Purple: 7 parts Red, 3 parts Blue And here's what they look like. Notice that they look kind of pastel, but that's because I used an opaque white paint as my medium. That does it for this segment. Next time, I'm going to render MSX colors using food coloring.
This is the second installment in computer food coloring. This time, it's the MSX palette. It's also used on the ColecoVision, and the TI 99/4A. Therefore, it could be called the TI palette. It consists of 15 colors and a transparent color. Color 0 is Transparent. Black: 8 parts Black Medium Green: 9 parts Green Light Green: 5 parts Green Dark Blue: 7 parts Blue, 5 parts Neon Blue, 5 parts Neon Purple Light Blue: 2 parts Neon Blue, 2 parts Neon Purple Dark Red: 30 parts Red, 1 part Blue, 1 part Green Cyan: 3 parts Neon Blue Medium Red: 13 parts Red Light Red: 5 parts Red Dark Yellow: 8 parts Yellow, 3 parts Red, 2 parts Green Light Yellow: 3 parts Yellow Dark Green: 24 parts Green, 1 part Blue Magenta: 7 parts Neon Purple, 2 parts Green Gray: 2 parts Black White: None The transparent color was achieved by using plain water. The medium used was Sargent Art Art-Time white tempera paint, which is opaque. And here's how it turned out: That certainly looks cool! It's pretty accurate.
